OPENEDGES LPDDR5/4 PHY IP Licensed by Novachips

Seoul, South Korea, February 10th, 2022 --- OPENEDGES Technology, Inc. (OPENEDGES), the world’s leading memory system and AI platform IP provider, is pleased to announce that Novachips, an innovator in flash storage processors and storage modules, has licensed the silicon-proven LPDDR5/4x/4 ORBIT™ PHY IP (LPDDR54 OPHY™) developed by The Six Semiconductor (TSS) in 12nm process technology. TSS is a subsidiary of OPENEDGES and a leading supplier of cutting-edge high-speed memory PHYs in multiple standards, technologies, and foundries.

OPENEDGES’ LPDDR54 OPHY is highly configurable at the channel and floorplan level while demonstrating superior PPA (performance, power, and area) over alternative PHY solutions. This configurable architecture ensures a compact area while still realizing the maximum LPDDR5 data rates of 6.4Gbps. The LPDDR54 OPHY further excels in configurability and performance with its proprietary microcontroller, which accelerates training time across multiple configurations.

“After thorough consideration, Novachips is happy to license the LPDDR54 OPHY from OPENEDGES and TSS,” remarked Daniel Kim, CEO of Novachips. “The OPHY provides significant PPA advantages over comparable IP. In our SSD controller application, the OPHY takes up around 50% less area than alternative solutions. We've received thorough and reliable customer support from OPENEDGES and TSS, and we look forward to our continued collaboration."

“Novachips is an SSD storage technology innovator, with products that are deployed by customers with the most stringent demands in mission-critical applications,” says Richard Fung, TSS’s chief executive officer (CEO) and founder. “We are delighted that they have selected our LPDDR54 OPHY for their project, complementing their breakthrough architecture with ours.”
